Biking (Mountain ) 2:40:00 [3] 28.0 km (5:43 / km) +800m 5:00 / km
shoes: Instinct 2024 service

Cranbrook trails with James and Wakana. Started with the toughest trails in Cranbrook. Windy Bluff and Stunty. Some exciting rock rollovers and slab descents, some double-black diamond within these black trails. Also some good challenging ups. Then onto some flowy descents in Double Shot and Espresso.
Wakana headed back and James and I did a lap of the two halves of Ewok and Roll across the highway. This was more like the older blue xc that Cranbrook had lots of.
A really fun day, especially the spicy sections.
Calf was fine for the whole ride including a really challenging technical climb that we sessioned. After the ride, noticed a minor discomfort lower down (soleus?).

Biking (Road) 3:00:00 [2] 75.0 km (2:24 / km) +800m 2:17 / km

Going to the Sun road with James and Wakana.
Drove down in the morning (2.5 hours from Cranbrook) early so that we could start riding at 9:00 and beat the possible rain. Parked early along Lake MacDonald on the west side of the park. Rode part of the road that is open to cars, then construction caused a big line of stopped cars that were waiting to follow the pilot car. The flag person let us go the wrong way up the one way road to the lodge and skip the car stoppage. Enjoyed no traffic after that to the gate at Avalanche Creek where cars were not allowed past. From there we could ride up the middle of the road. Lots of bikes, mostly e-bike rentals. We were able to ride to Bird Woman Falls overlook (about halfway between The Loop and Logan Pass). After that it was still closed for avalanche hazard and snow removal. Nice view up the green valley and you could see to Logan Pass.
Put on extra layers and rode back down.
